Whole Wheat Honey Rolls Recipe

Publisher Photo
My husband loves whole wheat bread, so I have adapted most of my recipes to accommodate his taste buds. The creamy honey butter adds a little sweetness to these airy golden brown yeast rolls. -Linda Gunn, Reynolds, Georgia

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm buttermilk. Add the butter, honey, whole wheat flour, salt and baking soda. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into seven portions. Divide each portion into six pieces; shape each into a ball. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Brush with melted butter. Bake at 400° for 12-16 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool. In a small bowl, beat butter and honey until smooth; serve with rolls. Yield: 3-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: Warmed buttermilk will appear curdled.

Just polished of a few of these gems. They were light, flavorful and just sweet enough. I do need a tad more salt though. Definitely a keeper of a recipe!

These rolls are A++ in every way. I had to use the entire 2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour. I also added 2 tablespoons of wheat gluten like usual when I make bread without bread flour. The rolls have excellent texture and flavor.
